Ginger Fire: Sunnyside's Natural Cold & Flu Helper

It’s that time of year again...the leaves are changing colour, cozy sweaters and scarves are being unpacked from storage, and our tea ritual is turning from iced to hot once again. Fall has certainly arrived. Unfortunately for many of us, so have coughs, colds, and sore throats. Although our Ginger Cure Tea works wonders for your body on its own, Jaclyn ­(our co­-owner and resident holistic nutritionist) ­ has a recipe that's sure to help kick that sick right out of you.

Here's how:

Steep a cup of our Ginger Cure tea. This is the base of your Ginger Fire.

Mix the following ingredients in a small ramekin with 1 tbsp of your prepared Ginger Cure:

● a pinch of cayenne (to taste)

● the juice of 1/2 a lemon ­(pulp is encouraged)

● about ½ tsp freshly grated ginger 

● a squeeze of your favourite local honey (optional)

After the honey has dissolved and your flavours are well-infused, strain the mixture into your tea using a small sieve.

Straight out of the Sunnyside kitchen to yours! Enjoy! ­
